I will try to clarify the question.

Roll US Posture. +1 Funding. Roll Posture for Caucasus.
The Event Instructions Table contains the following special instruction for this event when played by the Jihadist Bot:
Play if no GWOT Relations Penalty, else treat as Unplayable.
So if the current GWOT penalty is 2. Then, the Jihadist Bot would not play this event during its card play.
But what happens when the US (human) player plays this card for Ops? Does the event trigger? Or do we follow the Event Instruction Table literally and treat the event as unplayable?
Note that triggering the event could potentially have a negative effect for the Bot if the US posture were to switch and thus eliminate the GWOT penalty.
